Netbeans IDE – Automatic Suggestion while typing

hi i am using netbeans 7 IDE for java programming , and i am acutally a C# programmer and in visual studio whenever i type anything it displays a dropdown menu with suggestions , i want that to be enabled on netbeans IDE without having to press CTRL + Space to show the dropdown menu

thanks in advance .



By default, Netbeans gives suggestion only when you put a period (i.e. for class and object fields and methods).

However, you can customize auto-completion by going to

Tools > Options > Editor > Code Completion

Choose whatever configuration works best for you.

Hope this help!
